"My husband and I wanted to start making our own jerky, but couldn't find a recipe here to suit our tastes, so I made up my own. It's not too strong, yet has a great after-taste. Enjoy!" — vtelf03

This is it! The perfect jerky recipe I've been searching for! I've been making jerky for years. Tried other recipes and tried to make my own. The hot sauce I used was my own that I made from my peppers this summer. The really nice thing for me was that the ingredients are ones that I usually have on hand. I gave this out as part of my Christmas packages. Everyone loved it and I'm now going to make more for New Year's. Thanks!
This is the first time I have ever made beef jerky. I think I maybe could have left this in the oven for an hour or so longer. It is a little heavy on the Worcestershire sauce in my opinion so I think next time I might cut that in half. Here is a tip. I had the butcher at the market slice the meat from a roast. Made it super easy for me to throw it in a bag and marinate it over night. I did take a couple of the strips of meat and added red pepper flakes to them for a little zip- they were tasty.
Not bad easy and tasty
